The sofa: one piece of furniture people won’t buy online


A sofa is one purchase many consumers simply aren’t willing to make online, according to a recent survey.


Thanks to the Internet there’s hardly anything a consumer can’t buy online today, but according to a recent survey commissioned by Furniture/Today magazine and the online site Apartment Therapy, there’s one piece of furniture that many consumers say they would never buy online: a sofa.

According to the survey, 47 percent of consumers would never buy a sofa online and 20 percent would never buy a mattress online. For Millennials (18-33), the top three items they’re most unhappy purchasing online are area rugs, sofas and stationary chairs. For Generation X (34-49), the top purchases they’ve been unhappy with purchasing online are area rugs, stationary chairs, dining room furniture and decorative accessories. Baby Boomers (50-68) have been disappointed with their online purchases of area rugs, stationary chairs, occasional tables, lamps and window treatments.

Let Panoply Interior Design take away the mystery of purchasing a sofa or area rug and give you confidence and guidance in making the right choices. We have fabric samples from all the lines we carry as well as some of the finish samples. For area rugs, we have corner squares of the actual rugs, not just a photo.
